MTU7SABA x CARMEN LOOKSHIRE

A year back I did a piece about Machakos Kyalo and the ONE TRyBE COMPANy, an African based music collective. I talked to MTU7SABA about some of One Trybe’s work, but didn’t really get to touch base on his music, and if I had the room I would have. MTU puts out great music often, and is all around a great creative spirit. MTU is releasing an afro-beat album December and another album early next year , so the song is a precursor of what’s to come.

“I got an album coming out soon after elections in my country. It’s an album full of African music. It’s a seven track album. I’m also planning to have a tour to promote my latest single “Don’t Tell Mommy Why” feat. Carmen Lookshire from the U.S,” MTU said.
“Right now am on a mission to preach peace in my motherland, I am a peace ambassador chosen by the gods.”

A month back MTU dropped a song with Carmen Lookshire, “Don’t Tell Mommy Why”, and it’s beautiful. I was supposed to write about it earlier this summer, but I got a full time-writing job so my blog was inactive and I was unable to write the piece, which I regret. The track would have been too nice for the season, and I did a lot of people wrong by not shedding some light on this track going into the heat of summer.

Anyways, here is the track. It’s sad, sweet and warm. The lyrics can be a little heart breaking, but with the beach theme to back the wonderful music it still lifts my spirits.
